Museum unveils Pence fly bobblehead

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled a new bobblehead on Thursday commemorating the moment during the 2020 vice presidential debate where a fly appeared on Vice President Pence’s head. 

The bobblehead features Pence in his debate-night suit with the now-famous fly on his head. It also incorporates a plexiglass-like barrier and includes a removable mini fly swatter. 

The museum is offering the bobblehead through its online store for $25. They are expected to ship in January. 

During the debate against Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) in Salt Lake City Wednesday night, a fly landed on Pence as he was answering a question about racism. The moment, which appeared to last for longer than a minute before the fly departed, immediately went viral on Twitter. 

In the hours after the debate, the Biden campaign offered a “Truth over Flies” fly swatter for $10 on its website. As of Thursday morning, Biden’s online store sold out of the nearly 35,000 fly swatters, according to the campaign.
